    Good Info Wolfshadoe, and thanks for tagging along. I'm just a casual grower on their second run with these type of plants. It's all a learning curve in my small 4x2 tent, down the road, I'm gunna double net scrog these, and weave em up and threw. If not, they do grow tall past my light and into the roof, must train..

      Up Up and Away...

      The shell was still stuck on top pretty tight, so I lightly nudged it off. You can see it far mid upper right of pic



      The other 2 sinkers are following suit with Miss Floaty still lagging behind.

        Looking good so far Bones! I expect you'll have near 100% germ if things go well. Shooters had 100%, and I had 95%.

        I look forward to seeing the double net scrog. Ive tried single net scrog, but I feel double net has to be better, or maybe Im just a bad scrogger..hehe. These ladies shouldn't stretch too badly out of control once they enter flower.

          Yes. 100% germination.




          But, I lost em. I had just spritzed them a little bit heavy, and was about to put em in the flower tent to warm up the soil and dry out a bit under the HPS. and wouldn't you know it, phone rang, out of state emergency. So, there they sat under the cool florescent, mildewing away/damping off.. 5 in total, had stuck another seed in soil to keep up with Shooters.. Here's our star today :( R.I.P.):



          So, Start Anew, With 5 seeds left to play with, I put 3 more of the Afropips Repro's straight in my soil mix in smaller pots, in case I gotta run somewhere for a few days, they'll be o.k. without me being so climate controlling. the 4th seed planted front right is a generic run of the mill regular Durban that I usually soak 24 hrs, then plant in soil, this time straight in dirt for comparisons.. Seems the Afropips Repro's don't need a soak as these 2 below that popped are so much more aggressive out of the ground and in size compared to the previous short lived attempt.. the top rear right one seems sluggish at this point. Fingers Crossed.. 2 seeds left to fill the holes..

            Hi CrossBones, my condolences on losing the little ones. I thought that might happen to mine as well. In fact my #3 when it popped outa the soil still had some dirt on the head that I tried to knock off, only to knock the whole thing up outa the soil, tail and all. I quickly replanted it and it took a couple extra days to finally shed the seed hull and start growing.

              Thanks for the condolences Shooters.. My timing for them just wasn't right I guess.. Felt the massive pressure to get em going.. I am now considering planting my last 2 seeds. I have 2 DC's (left side), and 1 regular generic (lower right) growing well, Still waiting on that 1 last seed to show it's head.. maybe tomorrow night I'll surgically go in for a look with the magnifier and pic to see if it sprouted.. Then decide.

                Wow, was surgically poking around the other night, only the have the seed pop right up and out of the soil with a 1/2 inch tap root, now in a much panicked state, quickly re-planted and watered in. It's been starting to show it's head for the last day, so, hopefully it will pick up some steam.. Thanks Shooters!!!

                This plant growing stuff is kind of like watching a really slow moving herd sometimes...

                  Halloween Update : 2 DC's (left pic) are doing well - (upper right pic) DC very slow sprout growth, yellow tipped cotyledons, Shell was stuck on really good. I waited for it to loosen up, but eventually plucked it off as growth and light were hampered. Just yesterday decided to spread the leafs open as they weren't on there own.. Don't really know. hopefully it will come around.. (lower right pic) generic DP -- Fimmed all between 3 - 5 nodes



                  What's that whitish stuff on top of the medium ??? Just got in a tub of Montana Grow Silicon Amendment to test out today..

                    The DP typically get between 3-5 feet in my garden. Much easier to manage than say the Gypsy Thai in my garden.

                      I'm trying, This last seedling showed stalled, Planted another and it is doing great, Altho, it's way behind.. Only got one bean left in your tube :( was unfortunate, but I blame myself for overwatering the first batch, rookie move, and the bad timing to recitfy it...


                      Anyway's, Quick Update, Just moved em into a 15:45/8:15 cycle - tops fimmed again 2 more nodes up, and set 26" under a 400w Super Eye Hortilux from a 18/6 cycle under a flourecent. Here's a peak. 3 of yours and a generic, Can you tell what is what?

                        Hey dont feel too bad about the over-watering. Ive grown lots of seedlings, but every now and then I fuck it all up too. My latest batch of pure DP seedlings are struggling to recover from just barely over-watering. I was giving my seedlings 2 oz of water when I should have been giving them 1-1.5oz of water, and just that little bit of water has lead to damaged roots, and stalled plants in my garden too. They're so delicate at this stage, but keep at it, and water just a bit less than you think you need to, and you'll probably see an improvement.

                        Its a shame to be down to one bean, but even that one could be something special. Take good care of that last bean!

                        Speaking of Durban crosses, Ive got some pics coming up of DpxThai finished buds, and some DurbanXShit f1 hybrid seedlings Ill get posted tonight. Hope you'll enjoy em!

                            Update: Been battling a very lite fungus gnat infestation since the first posting date. Gave em a few watering's with H2O2 which has also effectively killed off the microbes and sterilized the soil. Also started with gnatrol wdg watering's last friday and tonight, been watching the tanglefoot traps I make and they seem to have slowed.. Gave em a good watering of recharge tea tonight to reintroduce some bennies.. Transplanted DC1, DC2, and GDP into 1 gallon pots sideways and tied their tops down in the last week as well as fimmed DC3 at the 3rd node.

                            Al tho you can veg under the Super Hort and they do ok, I always felt they need even more on the blue side to balance it out so I have been running a 4ft T-8 6500k shop light across the back of my tent, just behind my hood 18/6 to supplement the hps, So I scored a Cyber Monday deal on 2 300w Viperspectra v300 LEDs with a 50% Blue 35% Red 15% Green spectrum and installed em tonight -- Hung 1 on each side of the hood angled in. Turned off the HPS and am watching temps.. these leds have a 2x2 veg light spread, just enough to fill the 4x2 tent I'm using. I have the HPS set to 50% for when it goes back on and pulled the T-8.

                            Think that's about it - Time for sum Pics
